Events, Fun stuff, YPT National Chapter (DC)

DC Event: Greater Greater Washington Birthday Party

DC transportation buffs: it’s time for a party! From YPT friend David Alpert, the founder of the DC area’s Greater Greater Washington blog on transportation, urbanism, and smart growth:

See you at Tuesday’s 5th birthday party!

Are you coming to the party to celebrate 5 years (and one month) of Greater Greater Washington? We hope you can!

We’ll be celebrating from 6-10 pm at Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company, 641 D Street, NW near Archives Metro and not far from Gallery Place. Besides a great chance to meet your fellow readers, some elected officials from DC and elsewhere in the region will be joining us.

Unfortunately, it’s impossible to schedule any event without conflicting with some other great stuff. In Montgomery County, the Chevy Chase Lake Sector Plan hearing is also Tuesday, so some of our Montgomery readers will be testifying. It also means our friends on the County Council won’t be able to join us.

David has personally reached out to invite YPT members and friends to the birthday bash, and it promises to be a fantastic – and fun! – networking event.  Happy birthday to Greater Greater Washington, and we hope to see you there!

Let's highlight another part of the #transportation industry - passenger aviation - that so many of us rely on for business travel and personal adventures. How many #young #professionals do we have in the #aviation sector? #transport #adventure #cloudy☁️ @bwi_airport 🎶Rivers and roads, rivers and roads. Rivers til I reach you.🎶 @chesapeakeandohiocanal #bikes #canals #transportation #throwback #travel #adventure Choo choo. #modeltrain display at Norfolk Southern. #trains #transportation #model #hobbies YPT Austin was instrumental in supporting the Greenroads Boot Camp hosted by CTRMA in Austin.  Increase your sustainability street cred, and learn more about Greenroads International, one of our Silver Sponsors! #transportation #sustainability #green #transit #engineering #thankful The #Alaska #Railroad’s main line stretches 470 miles from Seward to #Fairbanks, #connecting communities all along Southcentral and Interior Alaska. The main line was completed in 1923 after 9 years of construction; President Warren G. Harding traveled to Alaska for the occasion and personally drove in the Golden Spike to finish the job. In 1943, the Railroad completed a 12-mile spur to the tiny port town of Whittier. In total, the Alaska Railroad provides regularly scheduled passenger service along 482 miles of track – an expanse greater than the distance between #Boston and #Washington, D.C. #friday #trains #transportation Check this amazing #sunset shot, shared by our equally amazing Director of Chapter Development @wbybanana.
